. for four years the gop blasted the obama economy. he made it worse, they said. his policies were ruinous. the recovery wasn't too slow because of the severity of the financial crisis, no, it was because of the man at the top. three reasons now why every day that argument by the gop is harder to make. first, the economy is picking up speed. gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the u.s. economy grew 2.7% in the third quarter, much better than the 2% originally report. next, housing is healing. home prices jumped 3.6% in the third quarter, the biggest year-over-year increase in more than two years, according to the s&p case schiller index and energy is booming. new drilling methods are generating jobs and growth. 1.7 million jobs created, 2.5 million jobs creed up over the next year and added up americans see better times ahead, why consume are confidence is at a four-year high. i know, i know, i know. it's not strong nup enough, i agree. it's fragile, you're right. just this week the organization for economic development downgraded its economic forecast and we need to make sure
: it was a very emotional moment for president obama, soledad. something certainly remarkable, but there was something else in his comments that was also remarkable. if you're someone who listens to president obama and you really parse every word he says, as so many of us do, he talked about having meaningful action. this is significant. because white house press secretary jay carney was asked yesterday about what might happen in the wake of this tragedy. every time, unfortunately, that there is a shooting like this, people start asking about what kind of legislation might congress be able to enable to enact to stop this from happening. a lot of times that means to be gun advocates saying something needs to be done. this has not been a priority for mr. obama in his first time, but listen again today as he said it in his weekly address. >> as a nation we have endured far too many of these tragedies in the last few years. an elementary school in newtown, a shopping mall in oregon, the house of worship in wisconsin, the movie theater in colorado, countless street corners in place
that's being offered? >> reporter: do you have an appreciation for what obama and boehner are looking at? >> oh, absolutely. i sympathize with both of them. it's not fun for these guys because there's too much at stake. it's fun for me because the worst that happens is my client gets less money, not the end of the world. it may seem that way for the client. >> reporter: even children know you have to cooperate. >> maybe you can work together, build together. maybe you can connect it. what do you think? >> oh yeah. >> reporter: a daily lesson on the playground. working together sprouts even better solutions. >> you want to see my great idea? >> reporter: do you think that these lessons on the playground really need to be transferred to d.c.? >> absolutely. absolutely. we need to find a way to work together to figure out what's going to be acceptable to everybody. we've got to figure it out. otherwise, i mean, we all lose. >> reporter: there's nothing surprising here, because maybe it's just that simple. so if they can do it -- >> how old are you guys? >> 5. >> reporter: maybe the polit
been extended -- no one exactly knows where it goes from there. >> right. >> if obama has more appointments and if the conservatives don't have the power that they do now, that could be contained. it could be applied only to handguns. but if president romney had had the opportunity or president paul ryan in a few years gets the opportunity to appoint justices to the supreme court, that could be expanded. the limits of the second amendment are not clear at this point. the supreme court has not really spoken on it. that's one of the reasons why it's so important, who appoints whom to the supreme court. >> at what point is gun violence in america a public health threat, right? you talk about the freedom, the freedoms we have in this country where the public health risk, 30 some thousand people killed every year. cdc says it's $38 billion, the cost of society of gun violence. >> what's so astonishing about the debate of gun violence, it's different from the '90s when i first started covering this issue. you have people arguing very seriously now that the way to stop or limit gun vi
